French Friday: Cubist Literature

Just came across these fabulous t-shirts and bags over at Cubist Literature, where you can also find scads of other rad tees, handknit gloves and scarves, cool shoulder bags, and a bunch of other cool things with their stellar illustrations.

The following shirt is so strikingly awesome, it was even featured in June 2009’s New York Fashion Magazine!

Or, go ahead and get the bag instead:

French Text:

“Moi, je veux te dire que je ne te quitterai jamais. Et puis, si tu es triste, je pourrais toujours te donner un peu d’alcool pour te rechauffer le couer. xo”

Translation: I want to tell you that I’ll never leave you. Then, if you are sad, I could always give you a little alcohol to warm your heart.

Go forth and purchase! T-shirts generally range from $23-$26.

Wordshop Wednesday: Egg Press!

For a blog entitled Words & Eggs, I’m quite astonished that I haven’t yet featured Egg Press on the site. What the heck have I been doing with my time?! Well… better late than never, right? Right.

So, without further ado, allow me to introduce you to the intricate loveliness of… Egg Press!

Egg Press also offers a ton of Valentine cards, but I refuse to display them to you right now. I figure I’ll do some sort of Valentine post later on, even though I generally find Valentine’s Day an annoying pseudo-holiday invented by the Whitman’s Sampler and FTD (among others). But feel free to head on over to Egg land and check out their V Day cards, because they’re pretty d@mn awesome (for a lame-o “holiday”).

For this fourth installment of Wordshop Wednesday, I would like to introduce you to the adorably crafty and poetic Sprout Head. Sprout Head sprouted into my life yesterday, via Poppy Talk‘s lovely introduction of highly purchasable holiday ornaments. I clicked on the link to Sprout Head’s Etsy shop, and…well, that’s pretty much where the obsession began. Check out the genre-bending (hehe, get it?) sprouts for yourself:
